If that's what you consider mediocre writing, then I'm not sure why you bother reading fanfiction at all, cos your standards seem way too high. PA's writing may not be as good as you'd expect to find in a published novel, but for a fanfic it's definitely top tier.

I haven't read a lot on AH, but yeah this makes some sense. And it's probably very self-reinforcing as I imagine the majority of the feedback on AH is nitpicking the divergences. It's unfortunate, because the diatribes are what really holds the fic back. The chapters without them are just fine.
